Biodegradable and compostable packaging belongs in your REFUSE bin.


Examples: Compostable coffee cups, bags, take-away food containers, vegan galaxy chocolate inner packaging.

As these plastics cannot be distinguished from regular plastic by sorting equipment in recycling plants, and the material will not compost in current food or garden waste facilities, these items must be placed in your refuse bin, even if they state on the packaging to put them with you garden or food waste.
